Volunteers are Awesome

Volunteer at a GO Pantry Event!

We couldn’t do it without you! We need awesome volunteers to help at community events and at the warehouse. Warehouse duties might include date checking and sorting donations, packing GO Boxes and GO Bags, loading and stacking boxes on pallets, taking plastic off canned goods, etc. Most of our shifts are on weekdays, but we also offer some weekend and evening shifts.

We use SignUp.com to get the word out about volunteer events. The sign-ups give all the specifics including date, shift times, shift descriptions, etc.
If interested in volunteering, you can fill out the form below or email sarah@gopantry.org

VOLUNTEER TO HOST A FOOD DRIVE

 

It’s easier than you might think!

One of the best ways you can support GO Pantry is by hosting your own food drive. Get creative… work with your kids, co-workers, fellow church members, neighbors, sports teams, retail stores, gym, etc.

Watch this video to see just how easy it can be to host a neighborhood food drive.

Not only will you collect much needed items, you will also help spread the word about GO Pantry the kids we are working so hard to help.

Volunteer Spotlight

Volunteer 1

We love our volunteers! We are so thankful for their selfless service. Without them we wouldn’t be able to accomplish nearly as much or have as great of an impact.

Tom Barth started volunteering at GO Pantry during the summer of 2020. He was first introduced to GO Pantry through a food drive at his church, First Church of Christ, and he’s been volunteering with us ever since!

Tom has a true love for children and feels called to carry out God’s work through helping children in any way he can. He not only volunteers at GO Pantry, but several other area organizations as well. Tom says, “I love working with kids, especially the younger ones, and feel blessed that God gave me this gift to minister to children for His honor and glory. I tell people that retirement is the best job I ever had. And I’m working for the best boss possible, God. I never fail to leave my “jobs” with a smile on my face.” We can attest to this first hand. Tom always brings a positive attitude (along with strong muscles to help us lift heavy boxes) for which we are forever grateful!

When Tom isn’t volunteering, he enjoys spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren. Thank you, Tom, for including GO Pantry in the many ways you serve God and your community.

Kids’ Age Requirement

​Because we work in a busy warehouse with lots of moving equipment, we ask kids to be 12+ to work at a warehouse event, and we request kids 12-14 bring an adult with them to work directly with them.

We have lots of groups of young kids that find other creative ways to help too. Other groups of students have worked together to do food drives within their schools, neighborhoods, sports teams, church groups, etc.

We can share with you more details if this is something you might like to try with your kids

Waiver​​ for Minors

All volunteers need to complete a waiver before working at GO Pantry warehouse events.

If you are a minor, please have your guardian complete the waiver prior to event and bring it with you to your volunteer shift. Thanks!
